It’s not often that Stanford climatologist Stephen H. Schneider shares the limelight with the Dave Matthews Band (which has sold more than 30 million albums over the past 12 years), hip-hop rapper, producer, and actor Snoop Dogg, and recording artist [...]
Changing ocean chemistry threatens the survival of marine life as much as warming temperatures. Understanding the basic chemistry of ocean acidification and the relevant consequences for people and wildlife are keys to effective journalism on an issue of growing importance [...]
May Day brought a climate blindside of sorts this year, and it didn’t come in the form of a freak snowstorm in the tropics. On that day, a peer-reviewed study in the esteemed journal Nature predicted a temporary cooling of [...]
An argument frequently used by those skeptical of the role of anthropogenic greenhouse gases in modern temperature increases is that warming is caused by the Sun. At first glance, it seems to make intuitive sense: the Sun is a massive [...]
President Bush, well into what is widely seen as his lame-duck period, last month proposed his administration’s first concrete plans to cap U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. Policy makers and many in the news media appear to have largely written-off the [...]
